|How much does this home cost?|
Since last year, when we started looking at houses, we now constantly wonder how much different houses cost or the price of certain areas. For example, while in DC, we were curious about how much her aunt and uncle’s house would be if for sell. I started looking at some real estate guides for that area and then for a few other areas. Wow. I am glad we live where we do.
After a little research, I discovered the Zillow Home Index, which if you want an explanation, go to their site and read how they come up with these numbers, but I figure they are a good tool for a fun comparison. I made these charts on the site and used a three bedroom house as the comparison.
New York City and Washington D.C. are super expensive places. How does the state of Pennsylvania look?
State College is more expensive than the Philadelphia area? That explains so much. Unfortunately the Johnstown area does not have any data, but the Altoona area does and to no ones surprise, that market is one of the lowest. I guess there is some good news for the Pittsburgh market, that has been growing over the past ten years.
